LOMA LINDA UNIVERSITY LaSIERRA CAMPUS
Josten's American Yearbook Co.
This first edition of VISIONS, the Loma Linda
University-La Sierra Campus yearbook, is
dedicated to those who helped in its creation.
To Meredith Jobe for sponsoring and actively
participating in its early research. To the year-
book staff for working untold number of hours
for little or no pay, a small amount of praise
and some creative satisfaction. To the six hun-
dred subscribers who believed enough to place
seven dollars of their hard earned money on a
project that was just budding. And to the Lord,
who believes in intervening and aiding frail
human attempts to portray His glory.

THE PRESIDENT AND VICE PRESIDENTS
"The founders of Loma Linda University believed in a three-fold concept of
education: the head, the heart, and the hand," says President V. Norskov Olsen.
"The same could also be expressed as body, soul, and spirit; the body being the seat
for our senses, the soul the seat for our will or ego, and the spirit the seat for our
"To Make Man Whole" exemplifies the University's purpose in education. In
the achievement of its fundamental purpose, each part of the University has its own
distinctive role. The Board of Trustees and the University administration provide
the appropriate environment — the physical facilities, the personnel, and the in-
tellectual and spiritual atmosphere. An able group of six vice-presidents assists
President Olsen in administering the school policies.
Norman J. Woods oversees the academic affairs of the University. Upon his
shoulders rests the responsibility of maintaining a high degree of scholastic excel-
lence through the hiring of faculty and monitoring of curriculum.
Money is vital to the operation of any business, universities not excluded. George
G. O'Brien keeps close check on the comings and goings of currency within the
Answering the needs of approximately 5,000 students is the job for a vice-presi-
dent of student affairs. Tracy R. Teele handles housing, food and health services,
counseling, placement, religious and extracurricular programs on both campuses.
Donald G. Prior operates out of two offices as vice-president for public relations
and development. Keeping the church advised of University activities, heading up
alumni affairs, raising funds for the future of the University are a few of the items
that keep Prior occupied.
The vice-president for foundation affairs is Robert J. Radcliffe. His job involves
the management of a financial investment fund supported by trusts, donations,
and special business operations.
Harrison S. Evans coordinates the Medical Center and School of Medicine in
his position as vice president for medical affairs. He is the liaison with the Veterans
and other affiliated hospitals, and is responsible for the coordination of clinical
resources of the Medical Center with the needs of the health-related schools.

THE DEANS, DIVISIONAL DIRECTORS, AND
The University's Statement of Purpose says the school is dedicated to helping its
teachers and students — as individuals and as a community — to reach their highest
potential in education, in research, and in service. College of Arts and Sciences
Dean Ivan G. Holmes says, "Our concern for students at La Sierra is that they
discover here their individual identity. Students should have a sense of belonging."
Holmes maintains the achievement of this goal requires a close relationship with
God on the part of students and faculty. "He is a Christian who aims to reach the
highest attainments for the purpose of doing other's good," he says.
Assisting Holmes in meeting the needs of a diversified student body are an asso-
ciate dean, division director and coordinators.
Harold E. Fagal is the associate dean. His responsibilities can be better described
as student academic affairs, or keeping tabs on scholastic progress.
Anees A. Haddad is the director of the director of the Division of Behavioral
Sciences, Sociology, anthropology, psychology, social work, and marriage, family
and child counseling are the departmental components in the study of man.
One of the largest groups of requirements for graduation, outside of a student's
major, are those in the humanities. Frederick G. Hoyt accounts for the assimilation
of departments whose subjects are art, communication, English, history, modern
languages, and music.
William M. Allen looks after the natural sciences departments: biology, chem-
istry, mathematics, and physics. More students major in these departments than in
any other area.
Wilfred M. Hillock directs the rapidly-growing collective gathering of profes-
sional studies departments: agriculture, business, industrial studies, physical edu-
cation and secretarial and business education.

A tree on a cliff
Green and Strong,
By the hostile environment.
It draws on earthy elements
To supply basic needs . . .
Struggling for life-
Leaves and limbs stretch
To catch vital, food-making
Sunlight . . .
Man, a social creature,
Unlike the tree,
Cannot stand alone.
He is dependent on,
The whims of nature,
The skill of others,
And most of all
Upon Superior Guidance,
To supply his strength
Both mental and physical.
He cannot shut himself
From the world,
He must send his roots
Into the earth,
Associating and communicating
Man is not perfect,
He makes mistakes.
He tries to smooth over
The rifts of life,
But just makes ripples.
He tries to help,
Lending time, experience,
To make life easier.
But against the expanse
Of our world
His efforts are insignificant.
Here at La Sierra,
Between the required
And the electives,
We strive to change,
To be more effective
To achieve an ideal
But often it is not enough.
Do we spend time with
Our fellow man?
Too often we are trapped
Thinking only of ourselves,
To enrich ourselves.
Why can't we stop,
Lay the pen aside
And touch the person
Next to us?
That's too difficult.

SCHOOL OF EDUCATION
Philosophical, historical, social, and psychological
studies in education undergird all professional prepar-
ation programs of the School of Education. Also, the
study of education is viewed as a worthy pursuit in and
of itself. A course in the methods and materials of re-
search in education prepares students of education to
pursue research in their respective areas of special in-
terest. The Department of Foundations of Education,
then, serves the other departments of the School of
Education as they prepare professionals for a variety
of state and denominational credentials, but also it
offers coursework leading to a Master of Arts degree
for the serious student of education who wishes to study
education for its own sake.
The Department of Curriculum and Instruction in
the School of Education prepares teachers for schools,
both denominational and public, all over the world.
The liberal arts major, which is most commonly pur-
sued by candidates for elementary teaching, has been
used as a model program for several teacher education
institutions in California. Professional preparation
programs for multiple and single subject credentials as
well as a variety of "Fifth Year" programs are ap-
proved by the Commission for Teacher Preparation
and Licensing in the state of California. Graduate pro-
grams are available in Elementary Education, Secon-
dary Teaching and Supervision of Curriculum and

The Department of Educational Administration pre-
sently offers two graduate degrees, Master of Arts
(M.A.) and Specialist in Education (ED.S.), designed
to prepare professional personnel for various positions
such as superintendent of schools, elementary and
secondary school principals, administrators of academ-
ics and student affairs, and school business manage-
ment. By combining research, practical experience, and
courses of study, a student may be prepared for a wide
variety of administrative and supervisory careers in
A program in educational leadership may be selected
to fulfill the academic requirements for an administra-
tor's credential from the State of California and/or the
General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.
Counselor Education is ... counselor education.
Graduate programs are offered by the department
to prepare counselors and school psychologists as
facilitators of individual decision-making. Emphasis is
on how to help others to help themselves with career
choice, educational planning, personal affairs and self-
understanding. A Master of Arts degree in counseling
may be earned with or without a state pupil personnel
services credential. Beyond the Master of Arts is a
Specialist in Education degree which prepares candi-
dates for activities related to school psychology, learn-
ing evaluation, and corrective proceedures for children
with problems in school. In all programs a balance is
sought between academic book-learning and the ac-
quisition of practical "hands on" experiences.

SCHOOL OF NURSING
Loma Linda University School of Nursing is committed to providing a
balanced professional education in a Christian Environment. The faculty
of the school places high value on the wholeness needs of mankind and
consequently on the promotion of human and social welfare. The primary
aim of nursing is to serve humanity by ministering to the body, mind, and
spirit. Nursing is an art based on science, directed toward the promotion
of physical and mental health, and the prevention of disease. It is a service
to individuals, families, and communities. Aside from functions derived
from medical authority, nursing has independent functions in the areas of
wellness and health promotion.
The nurse combines the work of healing with the work of helping indi-
viduals and families reach their level of optimal functioning through a life
style congruent with the laws of health. Nursing practice encompasses a
diversity of experiences, ranging from the care of infants to the care of the
elderly. Nurses practice in a variety of settings-from the hospital, with its
many specialty needs to community agencies, where the challenge lies in
providing necessary nursing care and teaching health promotion. Profes-
sional opportunities in administration, teaching, clinical specialties, and
the independent practice of nursing are avilable in the United States and
overseas. The qualified student who is interested in people and in pro-
viding health care will find a challenging, individualized role in the nursing

DIVISION OF BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES
The Division of Behavioral Sciences was created two
years ago by the University Board as a new organizational
structure to bring together five departments and two pro-
grams into one interrelated family of like-disciplines. The
Departments of Anthropology, Marriage and Family
Counseling, Psychology, Social Work, and Sociology —
and the Programs in Administration of Justice and in Mid-
dle Eastern Studies were thus brought into a new unity
that has proven of substantial benefit to all.
Three departments and one program operate on the
Graduate level thus creating a framework within which
the Division serves not only the College of Arts and Sci-
ences, but also several other schools, primarily the Gradu-
ate School — about forty percent of the Division operations
are on the Loma Linda Campus. Between 1,300 and 1,500
students are served each quarter by the various entities of
There is a concerted effort in our classes and research
activities to interpret the theories of behavior science in the
light of Adventist beliefs. Thus, thousands of our young
people who want to take courses in our various disciplines
have the opportunity of sitting safely and profitably in the
classrooms of competent Adventist behavior scientists
who are a rare commodity, increasing in demand as the
Church continues to find successful methods for dealing
with its internal and external challenges in an ultracomplex
world of human behavior.
We will continue, under God, to keep faith with you,
our wonderful students and the future leaders of our
church and our world.

highly trained faculty. This faculty is
distinguished by writing and research

ments, archeology, christian, virtue,
church, reformation history, theology,
and social ethics. Such engagement in

In addition to classroom activities
and individual study, education in re-
ligion at Loma Linda University involve
opportunities for personal participation
and leadership in witnessing and ser-
vice — opportunities that occur through-
out the school year, and in special sum-
mer programs, and include campus
life, nearby churches, and communities
Varied curricular activities provide
partial experience. "Externship" makes
it possible for ministerial and educa-
tional studies majors to find direct in-
volvment in local churches. Clinical
pastoral education is possible at LLU
Medical Center. And summer study in
Israel is an option elected by selected
students who desire field work in arche-
ology and Biblical studies.
Further, extra curricular activities
allow classroom theory to be translated
into life. The Campus Ministries offer
diverse programs for witness and ser-
vice. The City Parish Congregation
unite faculty and students from both
campuses to actively find involvment
in the worships and witness dimensions

EVERYBODY HAS TO
The Department of Agriculture
Everybody has to eat and somebody has to provide
the food to eat. The Agriculture Department is active
in producing food and teaching interested students how
to produce food. By combining commercial production
with its academic programs, the Agriculture Depart-
ment is able to offer career work experience as well as
a college degree.
Students looking forward to a career can specialize
in Intensive Food Production, Plant Sciences, Dairy
Science, and Poultry Science. Students who are only
interested in providing food for their own needs can
take classes which offer practical experience and tan-
gible results. Students who complete the Vegetable
Gardening class know that if the future doesn't promise
all they hope for, at least they won't have to go hungry.
The rapid growth of the department to its current
size of 45 majors plus the increase in the number of
non-majors taking classes is a reflection of two factors.
First is a greater awareness among students of the need
to learn some skills for a changing lifestyle. Second is
the increasing need for more and better food around
the world. The expanding career opportunities for
Food Producers both in the U.S. and throughout the
world is now at the point where there are more jobs
than skilled job applicants.
To meet the needs, the department is involved in
training and research to prepare Food Producers for
both domestic and international employment. Through
the Loma Linda University Agriculture Assistance
Program, the department is participating in projects
in several countries outside the U.S. This participation,
involving both faculty and students, demonstrates that
not only is there a need but that the Agriculture De-
partment is actively engaged in meeting some specific
needs and providing a vital service to the church, com-
munity and the world.

THE DEPARTMENT OF
The art department serves art-oriented majors and
general students. All beginning courses are open to any
major from any department.
The art department feels that we all have a respon-
sibility to the whole man — to the creative and intuitive
(albeit non-verbal) right hemisphere of the brain, as
well as to the cognitive and verbal left hemisphere.
Through the arts we are able to reach, to open, to un-
derstand our non-verbal right hemisphere. Studies in
art help the student explore and put more meaning into
the visual and spacial objects the right hemisphere
perceives. In studying especially the basic elements of
line, texture, plane, and dimension, the student is able
to grasp and understand the abstract elements (per-
ceived in the left hemisphere). An appreciation for these
abstract elements as well as the more obvious element
of color is also a departmental concern.
In the study of art, its order, we attempt to come clo-
ser to understanding the meaning of the world's crea-
tion — and the image of God through it — God as a play-
fully creative and happy god.
We are interested in shaping artists who are inter-
acting with the aforementioned elements. Some possi-
ble professional outlets for the student include sculp-
tors, painters, designers, potters, teachers, Commercial
artists, bio-medical illustrators, photographers and

BIOLOGY AT LOMA
In addition to having a staff of teachers who are
committed to the welfare of students and the Chris-
tian ideals of Loma Linda University, the biology
department has several other assets that add
strength to the program. The department has a gra-
duate program that offers M.A. and Ph.D. degrees
in biology. Association with the graduate program
add strength to the undergraduate program by in-
creasing the variety of courses available, and by
stimulating more interest in research. A goal of the
department is to strengthen this relationship by
combining the undergraduate and graduate pro-
grams on one campus. Faculty research currently
in progress on the La Sierra Campus includes cyto-
logical studies of insect reproduction by Douglas
Eddleman and study of the population genetics of
yeast by Gary Bradley. The department encourages
student research, expecially through the research
curriculum, which provides more opportunity for
undergraduate involvement in research and research
Antoher strength of the biology department is the
variety of field station courses that it offers. There
are two biology field stations in the Galapagos Is-
lands, and one of them is operated by the Loma Lin-
da University Department of Biology. We teach at
least one course there each summer. Also we are
affiliated with the Walla Walla marine biology
field station near Anacortes, Washington, where a
variety of courses are taught each summer. Our
third option is a wilderness ecology course taught
each summer in the California mountains.
The 200+ biology majors are receiving training
that prepares them for further training and jobs in
research, college, academy, or professional school
teaching, forestry, environmental study and pollu-
tion control or for further study in medical fields.

An enrollment burst three years ago in the Business
and Economics Department has been followed by con-
tinued increases of 15 to 30 students every year. The
current enrollment total is 200: 65 accounting, 125 man-
agement and 10 food service management.
A Master's program in Hospital Administration
has been recently approved to be operated cooperative-
ly with the Department of Health Administration. In
addition the department is developing plans for an
external degree program and also for a program at
South China Union College in Hong Kong.
Current chairman Robert Ford assumed leadership
in 1977, following five years of teaching in the depart-
ment. Wilfred Hillock, previous chairman, continues
to teach, in addition to assuming the role of coordina-

ities. These include an annual (8th consecutive) excur-
sion to the Colorado River. In addition, seminars pro-

While some may feel (the well known commercial
slogan suggests) Chemists earn a larger income, the
Chemistry Department feels it plays a major role in
preparing students for a better life. The Department
serves a broad spectrum of students planning careers
not only in Chemistry, but in the Health Professions,
Biochemistry, Biology and Education.
The Department feels it has not reached its fullest
goals in teaching about the atoms and molecules of
the submicroscopic world unless it also makes appli-
cation of these principles to daily life. Such issues as
environmental pollution, nutrition, synthetic materi-
als, and the application of Chemistry to the problems
of society are given significant attention. The Chemis-
try graduate is provided the mental and physical tools
to analyse many of the problems of society and plan
reasonable approaches to solutions.
The Department faculty and staff continue to ma-
ture and develop. This year Janice Chaney has done
well in coordination the activities of the stockroom
and laboratory as well as taking up some of the slack
when Dr. Zaugg broke his back fall quarter. Dr. Web-
ster will divide his time between Chemistry and the
Geo-science Research Institute giving him more time
for research. This year Dr. Allen took on the added
responsibilities of coordinator of the Natural Sciences
Further broadening of the Department offerings
this year found a group of summer school students
traveling through out California in Earth Science
Field Work. Seminars series delt with Environmen-
tal Pollution, Symmetry and Crystal Structure. The
highlight of the year was a workshop and lecture by
internationally known chemist Hubert Alyea.

The Department of Communication includes three
different areas, each with a program leading to a
bachelor's degree and in addition, a master's degree in
First of all is speech, familiar to all students because
one of the general studies requirements in the College
of Arts and Sciences is SPCH 104, fundamentals of
speech. The department offers both a major and a
minor in speech, with several courses in drama as well
as public address.
Then there is speech pathology/audiology, or com-
municative disorders. This is the largest area, with
four full-time and several part-time teachers. The pro-
gram now has 30 majors at the undergraduate level
and 15 at the master's. The facilities of the Speech and
Hearing Center, with more than 100 patient visits each
week, provide a variety of clinical experience for stu-
dents who log at least 300 clinic hours by the end of
their fifth year.
Early in the fall quarter of this school year, after
the faculty submitted a 400-page evaluation, the State
of California gave the program the clinical-rehabilita-
tive services credential (language, speech and hear-
ing). This credential enables students to work as speech
pathologists in school districts of the State.
The department also offers a major and a minor
in mass media, with courses in both pring and broad-
cast media; this year about 20 students have chosen
this major. One of the features which attracts them to
the program is a number of internships, in public re-
lations as well as media. In the winter quarter, for
example, the Adventist Radio, Television and Film
Center, in Thousand Oaks, takes six to eight students
for full-time on-the-job training in each of its several
Besides a major and a minor in mass media, the
department of communication, in cooperation with
three other departments, offers three interdepartment-
al programs: with secretarial, specialization as an
editorial secretary; with English, a major in writing;
and with industrial studies a sequence in photojournal-
ism and film.

CRS - SOMETHING
The Consumer Related Sciences Department is
The Indispensable Department. It deals in basics:
food, home and housing, clothing, consumerism, and
family life. The teachers in CRS are specialists in fields
that concern each individual. Their expertise serves
more than the seventy majors in the department. These
students are preparing for professions in: home eco-
nomics education, child development, clothing and
textiles, pre-dietetics, and nutrition care services.
The department serves each college student who
wishes to increase his skill in achieving quality life.
Doctor, lawyer, merchant, chief- all can enhance their
professions by acquiring skills taught in CRS. The
staffs commitment to enriching life has had its side
affects. They are not merely academicians, but also
hold credentials in a variety of other professions.
Doctor, lawyer, merchant, chief, meet- in addition
to teacher specialists in the fields listed above- nurse,
musician, carpenter, physical therapist, florist, author,
composer. All are teachers in CRS. All are dedicated
to improving life and living for everyone.

Picture your average major. He engages in witty
and heated discussions of topics profound and trivial,
reads entertaining and thoughtful stories, recites lines
from plays at the top of his lungs to amuse or annoy
his friends. He goes to plays, concerts, and museums
because (of all things) he enjoys them. There is not
many of him — twenty or, if we really exaggerate, thirty,
plus a dozen grads. At the end of four or five years
he may go into teaching — or fire off an application on
the spur of the moment and go into medicine. Or law.
In contrast, picture a well-known campus stereo-
type. The pre-med studies biology all night and day
until cats come out his ears and frogs his mouth, never
reads anything interesting, and has little time to amuse

sonnet-writer. At the end of four years of college, he
is rejected by twenty medical schools and starts sell-
Your English or Writing major knows he'll have to

serves on the advisory board for the California State
Fair in Sacramento. He also serves on the California
Counsel on Industrial Teacher Education. He is the
National College Automotive Teachers Association
Neal G. Stevens, B.A. (photography) is a profes-
sional photographer with a B.S. in art. His skills of
building and repairing cameras is much appreciated.
He plans to spend time in Europe during a part of
next summer for recreation and work.
Aubry Kinzer (aviation instructor) at one time pre-
vented himself from freezing to death during an Alask-
an flight mishap. He carefully burned his log book page
by page until he was rescued.
Clifton G. Gent (aviation instructor) has served as
an instructor in the Navy. He was a formation flight
trainer. During that time he made more than 200
carrier landings without accident.
Merle D. Morse, B.A. (Loma Linda Campus auto
instructor) has build numerous dune buggies with
his welding skills.
Although Terry James (wood technology) is a senior
student on this campus he has rebuilt his corvette body
into an original, high-performance, machine.
THE DEPARTMENT THAT
Where on campus can you find a baseball umpire,
an ornithologist, a magician, an automobile repairman
and a computer specialist? If you guessed the Mathe-
matics Department, then you are correct.
Carlyle Flemming is the umpire for Little League
baseball in his spare time. He also does statistical
consultation, teaches a full load and works on his doc-
torate at U.C.R.
Vernon Howe spends his summers investigating the
habits of birds in Northern Canada, and teaches a
class in ornithology in addition to his mathematics
Barry Graham performs startling magic tricks as a
hobby, while preparing some ideas from his recent
doctoral dissertation for publication.
Geoffrey Jones can often be found helping to get
someone's car running when he is not teaching, per-
forming the duties of chairman, or presenting a talk
to a convention of mathematicians in some far away
Hilmer Besel, besides teaching for the Mathematics
Department, is also the one everybody runs to for
help when something goes wrong with the campus
computer system. He helps teachers use the computer
as an instructional tool.
There are 33 Math majors including 2 studying bio-
mathematics and 14 in computing. For practical skills
students can choose to learn how to create mathema-
tical models of biological phenomena and apply their
knowledge to the life sciences. On the other hand,
they might prefer to study data processing and comput-
er science in order to prepare for the business world.
Still others decide to persue the B.A. in mathematics,
which is designed to prepare high school teachers.
Finally, there are those pure mathematicians who will
go on to graduate school and become research con-
sultants or college professors.

MUSIC-A Blending of Theory and Practice
Theory and Practice! Music students are exposed to a lot of both at
La Sierra! They study with 7 full-time faculty and 8 part-time contract
teachers. The students range in ability from rank beginners to budding
artists majoring in Performance. They take majors in Music Education,
Music Performance and Church Music. Non-majors are offered courses
in music appreciation, music history, church music and aesthetics.
The Music Department has many roles to fill: it provides music for
worship services, music for entertainment at banquets, music for tours
to churches and other schools; young recitalists share their long hours
of preparation with their classmates and friends; the choirs, bands and
chamber ensembles concertize.
Four of the seven full time faculty have doctorates and two are doctoral
candidates. The newest Ph.D. belongs to Dr. Don Thurber, who did his
dissertation research evaluating by survey the music education programs
in U.S. Adventist Academies.
The most recent innovation in music organizations is the College- Com-
munity Concert Band, directed by Robert Uthe.
The most dramatic physical transformation has been the rebuilding
and enlargement of the La Sierra church organ by Donald Vaughn and
his students. Although Mr. Vaughn has repaired and rebuilt the organ
for many years, it has been expanded to four times the original size dur-
ing this past year.
Dr. Joann Robbins has introduced class voice for beginning students,
and reports that it is a good "support system" for young singers lack-
ing confidence. They learn not only by doing, but by observing the pro-
gress of their classmates.
The piano students of Mrs. Anita Alsen are very active in presenting
recitals, and have also been winners in contests such as the Redlands
Bowl, So. Calif. Junior Bach Festival, and the Calif. Ass'n. of Profes-
sional Music Teachers.
One of the highlights of the musical year is the Annual Concerto Night.
Introduced 20 years ago this spring by Dr. Perry Beach, it presents a
rare opportunity for music students to perform concertos with orchestral
accompaniment. Students of Dr. Beach and Mrs. Olsen are accompanied
by the LLU Chamber Orchestra, directed by Claire Hodgkins, contract
instructor in strings and string ensembles.
A $15,000 Ford Foundation Grant provided the necessary funding
for a recent recording of Dr. Perry Beach's sacred cantata "Then Said
Isaiah" by Crystal Records. It was recorded by the Mitzelfelt Chorale,
Orchestra and soloists.
After more than 40 years of teaching music in Adventist colleges,
former Music Department Chairman Harold Hannum is retiring from
active teaching duties this spring. An Emeritus Professor at LLU, Mr.
Hannum has been a prolific writer, contributing articles on Church mu-
sic to Review and Ministry magazines, and two books, Music and Wor-
ship, and Christian Search for Beauty.
The present Music Department Chairman, Dr. H. Allen Craw, has
been chosen to write the article concerning 18th century Czech pianist
J.L. Dussek, for the 6th edition of Grove's Dictionary of Music and Mu-
sicians. Dr. Craw did his Ph.D. dissertation on Dussek, who was a con-
temporary of Beethoven. As an outgrowth of that research, Dr. Craw is
also editing two volumes of Dussek's piano music.
Since 1970 the Music Department has sponsored summer workshops
in Choral and Orchestral Conducting and Performance. The Master
Teachers are prominent European musicians. Herbert Blomstedt is
Music Director of the Dresden State Orchestra and the Swedish Radio
Symphony Orchestra. Sir David Willcocks is Director of the Royal Col-
lege of Music in London and Conductor of the London Bach Choir. Prior
to this, for 17 years, Sir Willcocks directed the fame King's College Choir
of Cambridge University.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION, HEALTH
AND RECREATION DEPARTMENT
The Physical Education Department has a wide
range of responsibilities. Fifty activity classes are of-
fered in the general studies program including archery,
jogging, skating, swimming, cycling, tennis, golf, back-
packing, racquetball and horseback riding. Majors
are offered in physical education and health and physi-
cal education for students preparing for the teaching
profession. General equestrian, therepeutic, and out-
door recreation programs are offered for individuals
in non-teaching areas. The major in health science
prepares students for careers in the health professions
as well as providing a major for the pre-professional
student. The department also supervises the pre-physi-
cians and assistants program. There are currently 65
health science majors and 85 physical education majors.
Recreation is "big business" at La Sierra. The
intramural program includes five activities for women,
seven for men and five co-ed. Additional time is pro-
vided for non-structured leisure time activities.
The Department is also responsible for the Bill Dopp
Equestrian Center. Riding classes are offered in both
English and western style for students and community;
horses are boarded and trained and a horse show is
held each month.
The physical education facilities proved an oppor-
tunity for education and wholesome recreation. So
that one's education may be complete, the physical as
well as the mental and spiritual self must be cared for
in a Christian setting.
Dr. James W. Riggs, Chairman
Mr. Richard Bobst
THE DEPARTMENT THAT
EXPLAINS THE UNIVERSE
To explain the universe in terms of physical laws
is the goal of physicists. Such a person is Albert E.
Smith. He has spent a number of years in teaching,
administrative work in SDA colleges, and optical re-
search in industry, before joining the faculty of the
LLU Physics Department. He has an active interest
in the optical properties of apertures, writing a book
on optics, Darwinana, gardening, hiking mountain
trails, and bird watching anywhere. Dr. Smith has
been with the department since 1971.
Richard L. Bobst is a former student and graduate
of the LLU Physics Department. During his under-
graduate days he worked in a print shop at Corona
with Wilfred Hillock. When Hillcok left the shop,
Bobst was made manager. Following graduation, he
taught high school physics, received his master's degree
in physics, and was on the physics staff under Dr. Al-
bert Smith at Atlantic Union College. Mr. Bobst has
been a faculty member at LLU since 1968. He is an
ardent jogger and enjoys hiking the trails of the high
Sierra mountains with his family.
James W. Riggs, Jr. is also a former graduate of
LLU, having graduated in 1947. Before coming to
LLU, he colporteured for a year, taught church school
in Texas, and spent two years in the U.S. Navy Medi-
cal Corp. Riggs has been a member of the LLU faculty
since his graduation, and became chairman of the
department in 1959. He is retiring from full-time teach-
ing in 1978 and is looking forward to a more relaxed
program with some travel, Russian language study,
amateur radio, photography, reading, and gardening.
Lester H. Cushman and Donald E. Lee are part-
time instructors. Cushman has taught physics and
mathematics at LLU for over forty years and Lee was
on the staff of the Physics Department a number of
years before serving the registrar until just recently.

SECRETARIAL AND BUSINESS
Wherever there is an office there has to be an of-
fice worker with secretarial or stenographic skills and
training. One of the many advantages of secretarial
work is that employment opportunities exist in com-
munities of every size. The U.S. Department of Labor
says that the "Employment of secretaries is expected
to increase faster than the average for all occupations
through the mid-1980's as the continued expansion of
the business and government creates a growing volume
of paper work." Within the Seventh-day Adventist
denomination the demand for secretaries continues to
increase each year. Loma Linda University Depart-
ment of Secretarial and Business Education is helping
to fill this need by training its 45 majors not only in
the basics for secretarial work in any office, but also
by giving specific instruction for a variety of special-
A secretary may choose to work in a "one girl"
office with only a few persons where she will have the
opportunity of performing a wide variety of duties.
Should she choose a large organization, she has the
possibility of advancement into administrative and
supervisory roles. Management-level positions await
those who continue to grow professionally.
If a secretary decides to specialize, the opportuni-
ties are excitingly varied. On the La Sierra Campus
of Loma Linda University, the four-year student may
choose to take the general program in secretarial ad-
ministration, or she may choose to specialize as an
editorial, educational, legal, or medical secretary.
Should she be interested in teaching, business educa-
tion would be her choice.
When circumstances prevent the student from finish-
ing a four-year course, she may choose to get an As-
sociate of Arts degree in either general stenographic
or medical office assisting in two years.
The teachers in the department, Charlene Baker,
Faye Chamberlain, and Lois McKee, are committed to
the task of providing the most comprehensive, up-to-
date education in the secretarial field that is possible
for the students who come to La Sierra.

BEGINS ACTIVE YEAR
Sunday, September 25th, was the date
of the popular Barn Party. The Party
was the first of the ASLLU social activ-
ities of the year.
Orginated by Abel Whittemore with
help from Sandy Arct, Freshman Orien-
tation Director, the party was designed
to get freshmen and returning students
to mix, mingle, and meet others in a
The exciting evening began with the
hayrides sponsored by Whittemore and
the Department of Agriculture. The
rides began at the Agriculture building
and terminated at the farm area near the
old college barn.
As students arrived they were greeted
by Bob Grant and Jeri Souw. Apple
Cider and loads of Winchells doughnuts
quickly made the rounds as students got
to know each other.
After games, the group settled down
to the serious music of Joe Savino and
Company. Though very familiar to LLU
audiences, Joe once again proved he
could make a whole new lot of fans with
his easy country/western music.
It was a good start for ASLLU.
Though time would show that not all
activities would be as well planned or
attended, it still set the stage for a year
that would bring challenges and solu-
tions, defeats and victories to the ASLLU
social activity program.
FALL ROUND-UP 1977
The Fall Round-up began at 8:30 p.m. on
the evening of October 1st.
Organized by Daniel Montero, ASLLL
Social Activities Director, the event saw a
bit of the western lifestyle come to the
campus for an evening.
Games which brought the students to-
gether were popular that night. Hot Choco-
late and mountains of cookies made the
After the rodeo which featured students
and faculty, the group turned its attention
to the music of Joe Savino and Company
Afterwards there was milk and punch and
leftover cookies for everyone.
Though people compared this compara-
tively low keyed activity to the immensely
popular Barn party of the week before,
most students thought it was a particularly
nice way to spend an evening at LLU,
especially since nothing else was going on
This years registration procedures were
the smoothest ever held at La Sierra due to
the overall coordination of Registrar Arno
Kutzner ran the tightest registration pro-
cedure ever as he saw to it that people ar-
rived at the Pavillion in an orderly way.
To help the newly arrived freshman class
a dedicated team of students led by Mrs.
Iris Landa, circulated through the Pavillion
assisting the new students.
The Chaplain was there of course with
his famous "Gabriel" punch to quench the
thirst of many an advisor as well as advisee.
As many returning students who in the
past had slid into the Pavillion found; this
year was the year of the fair turn.
Overall coordination of the day was pro-
vided by Mr. Kutzner and Mrs. Landa.
They deserve the praise for finally making
registration a livable process.
CAMPUS DAY STUDENTS
BUT THE CAMPUS . .
This years Campus Day seemed more like
an ad for Geritol than the takeoff on the Star
Wars craze it was supposed to be.
What made October 12 such a failure? May-
be it was the lack of support from the faculty
and administration which had so long voiced
opposition to having a day in which students
could relax from classes and labs.
Perhaps it was the obvious improper plan-
ning that killed the program.
The fact was, the reason Campus Day died
this year was due to lack of support from all of
There were planned activities. There were
people who had organized the day who waited
for crowds of students that were never to show
Many students felt that just because they
had a free day they shouldn't be forced to at-
tend a pre-planned day. Many chose instead to
go to the beach for one last day of sun and surf
before the winter. Other stayed in their rooms
and caught some precious hours of rest and
study for their first tests of the year.
For those that did participate, it was an easy
going day topped off in the evening by Film
Society's presentation of "55 Days at Peking"

WEEK OF PRAYER:
A TIME OF REFLECTION
For some students this year's weeks of prayer were
just another example of an institution which almost
forces it's religion on others by creation of the captive
For others it was a sharing and creating experience.
One week that brought life into focus. It became a
week of introspection and reflection. A week of reval-
uation and renewal of goals.
Fall week of Prayer was presented by Dr. Benjain
Reeves of Andrews University and dealt with the
theme of truth, and freedom. Dr. Reeves challenged
students and administrators to come in closer contact
with a caring God who desperately wants our love and
During the week groups formed over the campus
which met during first quarter to nurture and help and
encourage each other.
Spring Week of Prayer saw the return of a beloved
former teacher in the Div. of Religion. Smuts Van
Rooyen noted SDA theologian presented one of the
most challenging series in recent history.
Even though students really missed the student led
week of prayers of former years, objections were for-
gotten as students and administrators were united day
after day and night after night in the unique presenta-
tion of Dr. Van Rooyen.
Van Rooyen stressed the importance of simple
abiding faith in a loving and accepting God. He con-
centrated on the unique gifts of the spirit, as a saving
factor in the Christian life.
Some students ditched, others got work excuses,
most benefited and caught a glimpse of God's redemp-

FACULTY HOME VESPERS:
A welcome change of pace
Faculty Home vespers this year were known for
the unique programming they provided as an alter-
native to the usual Friday Night vesper programs.
The First one was held Friday night November
4th at 7:30 p.m.
Students met at the mailbox in front of the school
and were transported to different faculty members
homes for an evening of sharing and worship.
Many students were eager to see what the faculty
members really lived like!
At the Landa's residence, students marveled at
the many world artifacts that Iris and Paul have
collected in their travels. Paul presented slides of his
recent trip to Australia. One student marveled that
"Landa is amazingly the same man in and out of
the lecture room." Another student remarked,
"This guy was so far out he even gave us a biblio-
graphy, just like in class!"
At the Mitchells', students were treated to a deli-
cious meal and a presentation by student mission-
arys. Mrs. Mitchells was the perfect hostess and
proved she could tell a story just as well as her
learned husband. (Some say even better!)
They were pleasent evenings as students discov-
ered that the same strict teachers were human beings
who love to share and enjoy their work and life-
style. Faculty Home vespers served to bring the
University closer together as a family. And thats
what made them very popular throughout the year.
On Sunday, October 23rd, 1977
LLU spent the evening at Disney-
land, the "happiest place on earth."
Starting at about 3:00 that afternoon,
a procession of cars bearing LLU
stickers could be seen heading east-
ward on 91 freeway to Anaheim and
to the Magic Kingdom.
When the gates opened at 4:00 the
first place everyone headed for was of
course the brand new thrill ride:
Space Mountain! No other ride at the
park that night was as much fun or
had as many repeaters as the 5 minute
spin through the universe.
Of course there were the other
usual rides that weren't to be missed.
Pirates of the Caribbean and the
Haunted Mansion provided thrills
and chills of their own. For audience
entertainment, the Country Bear
Jamboree presented a concert that
even pleased the most discriminating
For some it was a momentous
evening because of the company.
Many of the freshmen chose the
University party at Disneyland for
their very first college date. For many
of us old timers it was a final chance
to relax before a grueling mid-terms
The evening passed ever so quickly
and before you could say "Fantasy-
land" it was 12 mid-nite. The cars
with the little stickers from LLU
slowly made their way back to cam-
pus. They left behind a magical world
of talking birds, space capsules for
two, dancing bears, dancing people,
giant water molucules and of course,
the one and only Mickey Mouse!
A calm ride home, a nice good
night kiss, and a relaxed, restful sleep
capped off one of the years truly
enjoyable Sunday nights.
THE HAUNTED NIGHT
A RENEWAL OF PURPOSE
A DIVISIONAL RETREAT
The Division of Religion retreai was held
this year at Pine Springs Ranch in Idyllwild.
This years main speaker was Morris
Venden who reflected the churches growing
concern with the issue of rigtheousness by
faith by presenting his talks on the subject
of being saved.
Venden's excellent series provided a
timely backdrop for the whole weekend in
which religion theology majors reflected on
the need to be prepared for assuming minis-
terial roles in the church and community.
Some of the highlights of the weekend
included the Friday night song service led
by Charles Teel; the Sabbath School which
broke into discussion groups which con-
fronted challenges to contemporary adven-
tisim such as homosexuality. It was Yvonne
Mason's stunning violin solo Sabbath
morning which left the audience amazed,
humbled and reverent.
The weekend climaxed with the agape
love feast and communion. The religion
majors and staff returned down the hill with
a clear sense of pride, purpose, and goals.

FESTIVAL OF NATIONS
A PRESENT FROM ASLLU
The Christmas Banquet this year was held at the
beautiful Airporter Inn in Newport Beac., on Decem-
ber 4, 1 977 as 7:30 P.M. It was the nicest present ASLLU
could have provided. The atmosphere was flawless,
the food was better than past years and the program
"Frizzy" an accomplished juggler performed feats
of unnerving skill before an enraptured audience. He
also had the world's longest handkerchief come out of
his mouth, as well as juggling up to ten objects at once.
What kept the audience laughing, however, was his
hysterical facial expressions. He amazed the audience
with his violin concert, playing everything from Led
Zepplin's Stairway to Heaven to a rendition of the
William Tell Overture, known locally as the Randy
Bishop Theme Song.
The music was provided by a group of PUC students
flown in for the occasion by Danny Montero, ASLLU
Social Activities Director. Ritchie Carbajal flawlessly
performed several renditions on the piano to set the
mood of the event. Don Cichetti was great as the

"BETWEEN THE LINES"
NEW TRIUMPH FOR ASLLU
STUDENT CENTER PROGRAM
March 5th, 1978 saw the debut of one of
the newest programs at the New ASLLU
Student Center. "Between the Lines" prom-
ised to be the classiest assortment of
campus talent ever assembled for an evining
As the audience filtered in around
8:00 p.m. that evening, few realized the
special event it would become. Invitations
were sent to 100 faculty and 200 selected
students. The master of ceremonies was
The first performance was an audience
stunner as alumnus Larry Richardson
presented "Casey at the Bat" Richardson
achieved an ovation and was admitedly
the evening's most popular act. Then
neophyte Lewis Rodgers teaming up with
the remarkably talented Carol Harding did
a set of 5 songs composed by Rodgers and
Elmer Geli. The songs were a sensation and
were one of the most creative presentations
Intermission was coordinated by Cyn-
thia Larkin. During the Secibdactm Elmer,
ever the empressario thanked his staff,
Jim Robison, Jodi Davies, Bruce Kim, and
Marjan Bentley for all their loyalty and
Larry Richardson again delighted the
audience with "Casey, 20 years later."
Richardson held the audience in his palm

What would an ASLLU event be without
the ever present music of Joe Savino?
That night Joe played new material like
"I can't Smile Without You" and "Love
Song for Julie" which he wrote for his
fiancee, Julie Switzer. Savino was joined
by Switzer and well known banjo player
Steve Schultz. After Savino's set, Elmer
Geli led the audience in a final thunderous
round of applause for all the performers.
Suzette Catalon then read the winners
of the door prizes and was shocked when
two of the five prizes went to her boy-
friend, Jim Robison, and her brother,
People loved the evening and many
wished that ASLLU would provide this
type of programming on a more regular
basis. "Between the Lines" was an indica-
tion of what is possible with a little hope
and creativity and a lot of perspiration. It
was just another of many activities this
year that dramatically focused attention of
the University on the development of the
new student center.
The original music of Lewis Rodgers and Elmer Geli featured Carol Harding as the female vo-
calist. Response was fantastic!
While Joe Savino and Julie Switzer entertained, Cynthia Larkin led the crew of Between the
Bruce Kim and Jodi Davies were honored Student Center employees.
A HIT AT LLU
Saturday night at 8:30, Michael Hen-
nessy, assisted by his musicians Dan Ble-
gen and Eric Sayer, gave a two part mime
presentation to 256 entertainment-starved
students. Each act, from his beginning with
the Trained Flea to his final juggling act,
was consistantly excellent and the tempo
and rhythm of each sketch grasped the
attention of most if not all of the audience.
By choosing common everyday events
and sifting out the more obvious qualities
Michael was able to strike home and pro-
voke emotions with every skit. Notable
exceptions were the Trained Flea, a mime
which anthropomorphized a flea, and the
Newspaper which inspired several inter-
pretations all of which an expression of
confusion rather than understanding.
During intermission the audience was
treated to several selections of "Classical
Cartoon Music" (which is not to be con-
fused with "Classical Hieroglyphic Music")
performed by Michael's magnificent mu-
sicians, Blegen and Sayer. With titles such
as Money (not by Pink Floyd), "Marvin
Mork and His Two Wheeled Tricycle",
"Garden Girl", "And Many Others", they
delighted, dumb-founded, impressed and
teased all with simple facts of life. Their
genius and technique came across in this
interlude without the distraction of Mic-
hael's precise routines. It was their music
that lended Michael's compositions life,
vitality and an ethereal quality of deep
Overall the Michael Hennessy Mime and
Music Theater was the best ASLLU spon-
sored activity to date. It incorporated an
educational, cultural experience with
thought provoking laughter.
BAUER WINS TIGHT
CM DIRECTOR RACE.
This election was controversial to say
the least. Ben Asare, the friendly and
highly popular president of the Interna-
tional Student Club mounted a strong
campaign to wrest the Presidency of ASLLU
from the ever popular Campus Ministries
Div., Steve Hadly.
At first Hadly was the expected shoo-in.
Steve had administrative support and the
support of nearly all students involved in
campus Student Government.
Ken Lombard, ASLLU president, also
formally lended his support to Steve as

Asare was able to wage a surprizing
showing and rally many foreign and minor-
ity students. He had the use of excellent
Public Relations materials and posters.
A controversial point in the elections was
the debate sponsored by "Student Center
Forums." Hosted by Jim Robison and
Elmer Geli, the debate showed a sharp
contrast in goals and issues. Hadly came
across as highly qualified, informed and
reliable. Asare was felt to have been vague
and unsure of specific goals and programs
for ASLLU. After the debate, opinion
seemed to turn in Hadlys direction. All in
all it was a fine race between two fine

ASLLU OFFICERS OF 1977-78
A REFLECTION . . .
This year's cabinet was a diverse collection of individuals with many strengths and weaknesses. As with all organizations there uere
cooperators, innovators, and implementors. There were friendships formed and friendships destroyed. Many plans were proposed.
pushed and refused, but we cannot expect all things to run as expected, least of all student government. We can at least expect it to
run, and it usually does.
Ken Lombard, President
He began his term with many new ideas,
but ideas cost in time and money. The most
visable of these were the remodeled Stu-
dent Center and the resurrected Yearbook.
These projects were accomplished in the
face of changing personnel and budget re-
strictions. Ken's calm manner helped his
cabinet pull through many shakings and he
remained a friend to all.
Wes Ferrari, Vice President
A strong Vice President that tried to get
things done quickly and efficiently, to por-
tray student opinion to the Dean of Stu-
dents, and to get the Senate to reflect stu-
dent desires and dreams, he resigned under
duress saying it was due to personal prob-
lems and academic pressures. Yet in spite
of losing his office he continued to accept
the responsibility of a job he began — this
included Speaker's Chair.
Holly Fredricksen, Chairman Pro-Tern
A freshman senator with no previous
ASLLU experience, she was elected Senate
Pro-Tern without knowing that by the end
of first quarter she would be thrust into
the role of ASLLU Vice President with the
resignation of Wes Ferrari. In spite of a
lack of procedural experience, Holly was
able to mold the Senate into a think tank
for future projects, a role which was new to
Dan Flores, Treasurer
One of the few officers that kept his cool
and mental health during periods of con-
fusion and budget over-runs, he maintained
a firm yet easy-going posture towards all
cabinet members. He was directly respon-
sible for innovating monthly reports on
ASLLU financial status as opposed to the
usual quarterly reports.
Steve Hadley, Campus Ministries
A master at recruiting people to work for
no pay and yet have them work with dedi-
cation, Steve Hadley was able to set up a
staff along standard managerial lines. His
programs almost always had good atten-
dance and participation. He was able to
remove, for the first time in years, the stig-
ma of "the Holy-Holy Club" atmosphere.
Danny Montero, Social Activities
Plagued from the beginning by a con-
stant lack of help, little response to new
activities later on in the year, a schedule of
events that fluctuated radically due to the
difficulty of handling all aspects of social
activities alone, and a lack of P.R. due to
unfinalized dates, social activities had dif-
ficulty generating support this year. In a
difficult, often criticized and thankless
post, Danny did his best.
Julie So'Brien, Student Services
Julie began her job with such good
promise, a larger budget and plans to give
the student more information about serv-
ices available to them. With this goal she
secured the original RTA bus passes. But
due to other committments she felt that
she would be unable to do her position,
justice and resigned.
Wayne Schmedel, Student Services
Wayne, for four busy weeks, attempted
to continue Julie's new programs and run
College Bowl. This proved too much to
handle and he too resigned with the bus
passes going to Security and College Bowl
Ron Esperson, Criterion Editor
Though bothered by a staff that regu-
larly changed (went to Thousand Oaks,
quit, etc.) Ron was still able to meet dead-
lines consistently. Early in the year people
wondered if Ron Sanders or Ron Esperson
was editor but Esperson kept his paper un-
der control. The photography was above
average in quality, clarity, and diversity,
but the paper was critisized for a drop in
Suzette Catalon, Public Relations
After several weeks had passed and there
still was not a public relations director,
Suzette Catalon decided she would do the
posters for just one ASLLU activity. She
didn't know what she was getting into! Be-
fore the week was out, she was appointed
the new P.R. director. In the weeks that
followed she attempted to keep the stu-
dents up to date in spite of receiving infor-
mation, too little and too late.
Sandy Arct, Freshman Orientator
Though Sandy went $400 over budget,
she pulled off the most satisfying and in-
formative Freshman Orientation ever.
Careful planning during the summer paid
off. Thanks Sandy!
Harold Avila, Parliamentarian
Harold, the man responsible for elec-
tions, can be credited with the smooth
handling of the elections as well as one of
the largest voter turnouts in La Sierra
Campus history. He was presented several
problems which he ably handled, including
an accusation of conflict of interest in the
officer elections (with Harold running for
Vice President yet being an ex-officio
member of the elections board), he tact-
fully averted conflict by arranging for his
duties to be smoothly taken over by Bob
Hale Kuhlman, Film Society Director
Even though Hale rarelj showed up at
the offices, he regularly showed films on
schedule and attracted individuals of all
types. In one of the less glamorous ASLLL
jobs, Hale Kuhlman did an effective and
Elmer Geli, Student Center Director
Entering this post with more energy
and perhaps a greater penchant for spend-
ing money than others, Elmer, through a
judicious spending of funds recarpeted
the student center, brought us better TV
reception, video games, and a "crowded"
and active on-campus place of entertain-
ment. He also directed the very popular
Ours After Hours programs and Between
Lcnore Magsulit, Secretary
"If you have a problem, go see Lenore",
was the standard line whenever any officer
had problems within himself. Not only did
Lcnore do a suburb job as ASLLU secre-
tary, she also filled the roles of typist for
hire (free) and local counselor. Why did she
stay when others left? She had a sense of
duty and a need to fulfill commitments.
Bertha "Crispy Critter" Cat
The ASLLU Mascot
Bertha will go down in history as being
the first and only cabinet member to go in-
to temporary retirement second quarter
due to pregnancy. She had five kittens.
Carl Opsahl, Inside Dope Editor
The editor for the second year in a row.
Carl Opsahl again produced a student
directory that was of high quality and was
Robert Ta\lor, Visions Editor
The head of the first yearbook in six
years, he provided the driving force behind
this year's yearbook. But he should have,
and stepped on more toes than any other
officer. He was heard to remark when he
came back from Spring break, "Where's

Leslie Beebe, Village, was a stickler for
procedural details in a year when it seemed
that parlimentary rules went out the window .

administrators with her bills, speeches,
and proved she would not be intimidated
in her quest to liberalize restrictive campus
Elmer Geli, Student Center Director,
said the wrong things at the right times,
something that kept the Senate laughing
through the worst meetings. His witty
comments tinged with sarcasm kept the
senate buzzing and the administrators
Bob Grant, took over the elections when
Harold Avila, Parlimentarian, ran for
office. Bob was conscience of the Senate.
Abrasive yet usually right on.
Zoya Jahaheri represented a growing
awareness on the part of village students
in ASLLU affairs. Zoya was chairperson
of the Student Center Committee and also
ran a successful fashion show for AS LLC
From Angwin Hall came three female
senators who changed the image of the
quiet non-speaking females in Senate.
Janet Samarin, Janet Staubach, and Cathy
Smith all had something to say and made
many contributions during the year.
Suzy Takeuchi continued presenting bill
after bill to the senate and the administra-
tion at great personal sacrifice.
Robert Taylor, the Yearbook Editor was
ghost writer to over 501 of the years legis-
lation. Robert would become aware of a
problem and start writing. Senators came
to recognize his easy casual style of writ-
ing. Robert's many observations and com-
ments during the meeting poignantly often
illustrated the lack of morale among this
year's senate group.
The lack of administrative support was
a burden to the group as it effectively
nuetralized the Senate to nothing.
What did the Senate accomplish' 1 about
20 bills. 17 of which were found impossible
to implement by the administration. Per-
haps the students could have tried harder
to work with the administration to gain
more student rights. Yet, it was difficult
to find any senators that bothered to co-
operate with an administration that re-
fused to consider an\ viewpoint other
than its own.
With a change in masthead, this year's Criterion moved
out with a sports section, increased photographic coverage
(including a full front page photo), and weekly personality
sketches. The personality sketches, pioneered by Mike Ooley
constantly and accurately brought us to know the inner per-
son of several faculty and administrators.
The addition of a true sports page gave the Criterion bal-
ance and lended a more personal touch to the usual "all
news" newspaper. Ron Esperson, the editor and man re-
sponsible for the change, believes that this gave the students
a truer picture of campus life. Life, after all, is not all books.
Coupled to the sports page were often photo essays that at-
tracted and kept student attention. Sparking the imagination
with an understanding of what actually happened, Ron suc-
ceeded in expanding the Criterion's reading audience, some-
thing that hasn't happened in years!
Acting in its traditional role, the Criterion also continued
in supporting reasonable student requests as well as sup-
porting ASLLU organizations (senate, yearbook, certain
clubs, etc.) in their quest for excellence. Sometimes after the
staff expected the administation to hit the ceiling (especially
after the Student Government/Administration cartoon,
"NO") but the guillotine never fell.
As the most vocal and visible of the ASLLU publications,
the Criterion tenaciously maintains its freedom of the press
status. To be anything else would be a slap in our forefather's

CARL OPSAHL, ED.
PROMISES AND EXCUSES
This year, Editor Carl Upsahl set as his goal
the notoriety that would come with breaking
the Dopes infamous speed record for the sec-
ond year in a row.
Fate decided differently as Dope production
dragged and sagged to a virtual standstill and
finally arrived 2 months overdue.
The photographic quality of the book won no
awards though the few of us who remember the
fiasco from 3 years ago couldn't have been more
Christie Hatton did much of typing while
Karen Hamer was Editor of the outside Dope
section. Steve Murphy was in charge of organiza-
tion and Sandra Opsahl of PUC was contracted
to the cover.
Abel Whittemore, Bob Grnat, Donna Mus-
grove, Harold Avila, Max Owens, and Tommy
Sykes were of much general help.
Typists included Lenore Magsulit, Denver
Driesberg, Rong Chung, Lita Simpliciano, Wena
Chung, and Yen Kim.
Barbara Scharffenberg led a great crew of
layout workers in getting the book put together.
Administrators and Faculty also were of great
help in Production. Mr. Basel was involved in
the programming to a large extent. Mrs. Masch-
meyer, Dr. Hammerslough and Mr. Welch were
also of help in various production aspects. Mr.
Tracy Teele edited unacceptable statements
from the final print.
Though never quite what we would like the
Dope to be, it is a valued part of the easy going
LLU lifestyle. Many a student found it to be the
best way to meet that really special person. It
made life a little more easier to know that Linda
Abbey was born on June 5 or that Kathy Robb
considers herself to be a "Rowdy" individual.
Girls were thrilled to know that Lewis Rodgers
is "Not a Crook" or that John Campbell needed
a "break" from them. ..
The Dope is a look book, a guide book, a cal-
endar, a statistical reference, and an all around
help to living at La Sierra. Really now, where
else could you as easily locate where Esther Vil-
lareal lives, what she is majoring in, how tall
she is, the color of her hair and eyes, how she
enjoys dating, where she's from, and her birth-
day without ever letting her know?
The Dope is neat.
Steven Carr's Photograph (above) won the $200 Grand prize.

OUTSIDE DOPE r\9
Speaker's Chair this year could be con-
sidered a study in contrasts. Julian Bond,
the Black, straight-faced, cynic educated
the masses on the defacto segregation
which continues in this "free land". B\
telling anecdotes on his trials and tribula-
tions that he faced in getting his seat in the
state senate of Georgia, Bond drew audi-
ences together by reaching into each per-
son's sense of fairness and showing us how
decrepid humanity really is.
On the other hand, Joseph Sorentino
dropped all his titles, his power, and closed
his distance by making himself so warm,
earthy, so human that everyone had to like
him and what he had to say. By taking the
stand that rehabilitation is only for those
that are not habitual offenders and are
young enough to change, Sorentino sur-
prised all by taking a hard line to the re-

A BREAKTHROUGH YEAR
"It's not the Holy, Holy club anymore",
was the slogan this year that bought Cam-
pus Ministries to the center of Campus
life this year. More students than ever be-
fore came out and participated in programs
old and new to the university.
Why this year? Why did Campus Min-
istries excell as never before? One reason
certainly can be the fact that the Dir. of
Campus Ministries last year was Ken Lom-
bard, Religion major. Ken was this years
ASLLU President and saw to it that Cam-
pus Ministries was given a large role in
student affairs. Under Ken's leadership
Campus Ministries broadened its base and
received much campus recognition.
But it was this years Director, Steve
Hadley who came to be identified with
Campus Ministries more than any other
student on campus. Under Steve, old pro-
grams were eliminated, new exciting ones
were added. People were encouraged to
try everything at least once. Through a
variety of resources Campus Ministries
encouraged clubs to have their own out-
reach and provided funds for the BSA
Branch Sabbath School and the popular
Sabbath Afternoon Program coordinated
by Jodi Davis at the new Student Center.
Finally the two people who are foremost
in making Campus Ministries outstanding
are Chaplian Osborne and his secretary,
Mrs. Rosemarie Osmunson.
Chaplian Osborne was alway there to
help when we needed him. No problem was
huge or tiny. From problems with Deans,
who were unfair, to financial hasseles, to
figuring out program schedules, the Chap-
lain never failed to meet Students needs.
Likewise with Mrs. Osmunson. So dear
to the heart of every student missionary
and every theo major who has forgotten a
pencil to Dr. Landa's Church History.
Every Campus Ministries program director
who needed a message delivered had to
depend on Mrs. Osmunson. Always smil-
ing on the outside (you know she smiles
on the inside even more!) she is truly an
asset to the university. Share with us now,
on the following pages some of the unique,
both new and old Campus Ministries pro-
gram that made this year special.

IT'S NOT THE
ONE TO ONE
Directed by Elmer Geli and Ron Sanders.
One to One is a unique method of Com-
munication between LLU students and
prominent church figures. Once a quarter
students are given the chance to dialogue
in an open, unrestricted way with people
important to the SDA church structure.
One to One was unrehearsed, sometimes
painful, maybe embarassing, but always a
growing experience for sides. Speakers
for this year were John J. Robertson,
Robert H. Pierson, and Geoffrey Paxton.

A WIDE SPECTRUM OF SERVICES

became an umbrella for former activities
that were now grouped into one coordinated

home of a new CM activity this year as
Jodi Davis took charge of Student Center
Jodi provided one program every month

Even though Jodi started out small, her

that students could enjoy recorded music
and relaxation at the Center.

What exactly is a fault, a tar pit, or
Forest Lawn? On Saturday afternoons
Susan Williams leads 60-70 eager students
to various parks and museums in the
L.A. area. While there the students engage
in song service followed by a tour or a talk
on the place they're visiting. The response
this year has been better than in the past
as evidenced by the full bus which leave
every Saturday afternoon.
CM OUTREACH AT INA ARBUCKLE
WAS A LEARNING EXPERIENCE
Under the direction of Marie Hand,
CM continued its highly valued help at
the Ina Arbuckle elementary school. The
Big Brother/Sister was a valued part of
WEEKS OF PRAYER: CAREFUL
PLANNING PAID OFF!
Coordinated by the ever efficient, easy
going, good willed Steve Mason, Week of
Prayer was successful both fall and spring.
Fall speaker was Benjamin Reeves. Spring
speaker was Smuts Van Rooyan. (See week
of Prayer, page 104)
CONVALESCENT HOMES OUTREACH
UP MANY LIVES BOTH YOUNG
The CM visits to area convalescent
homes became important not only to the
senior citizens whose lives were brightened
up but also to the young folk who spent
sabbath afternoon bringing cheer. Larry
Clonche did a good job of leading these
PRAYER BREAKFAST, A STEP TOO
With the many successes of a successful
year, Steve Hadley, the organizer of CM
Prayer Breakfasts felt that he could go a
step beyond the routine worships and sab-
bath afternoon programming. He envisioned
people getting up at 6:30 and holding
prayer breakfasts where they could fel-
lowship together before starting the day.
However, attendance proved dismal as they
went on and finally were stopped all to-
WORLD MISSIONS HAD GLOBAL
Under the leadership of Kris Lorenz.
World Missions took on a new importance
as students were made aware of the im-
portance of the Student Missionary pro-
gram. Not only in foreign countries but
here in United States, LLU students are
proving their value in God's service. One of
Kris' priorities was to let the students
missionaries know that they weren't for-
gotten. Therefore everyone from Susie
Smith in Nigeria to Terry Whitted in Ire-
land to Jarvis Howell in Japan was kept up
to date as we here at home watched the
bulletin board in La Sierra Hall for news
from around the world.
Formerly known as Afterglow, Music
Ministries this year has blossomed under
the able leadership of Francisco Mowatt.
Originally a program primarily dedicated
to sing-alongs after vespers in various
buildings around campus, it has grown to a
vibrant, living outreach of Campus Minis-
tries. It entertains students while providing
FRIDAY NIGHT VESPERS
Although this is a field where little stu-
dent input can be put in, Ray French has

A WORD OF MANY THANKS
The New Student Center ranks along
with this yearbook you are holding as
one of the most difficult yet worthwhile
things that your ASLLU has done for
several years. It would be sad indeed if
you the students did not know about the
cooperative effort that made the Student
Center come alive after a decade of in-
Ken Lombard, Dan Flores, Lenore Mag-
sulit, and Robert Taylor of the ASLLU
acbinet constantly expressed support of
the project realizing the cost and yet de-
ciding it was worth it.
My staff; Jodi Davis, Marjan Bentley.
Jim Robison, Bruce Kim, and Jamie Walk-
er were loyal friends who realized that
friendship tranzcended diasgreements.
They were a devoted bunch of people and
I am proud to have known them. Each of
them accomplished much in their own area.
Deans Teele and Dickerson must be
thanked for even allowing such a project
to happen. Despite tense disagreements,
budget overruns, and the way I goaded
them in Senate, they believed in me and
the idea of making the Center a focus of
My family, especially my sister. Eunice
Hankins of Cerritos, stood by me when my
grade did not. Iris Landa and Dr. Richard
Banks kept me and the Center together
from week to crisis filled week. Suzy
Takeuchi loved me.
Lewis Rodgers helped in so many \va\s.
As a counselor, mathematician, designer,
composer, scientist, theologian, writer,
talented artist, employee and most impor-
tant great friend.
Lastly, Abel Whittemore deserves men-
tion. Abel played so many different roles.
Tattler, informant, friend, enemy. Devil's
advocate, defender, always the confronted
the realist, the model I strove to be.
And finally, you the student.
It's there under the Commons.
It was done, presently is. and for some
time, will be all for you.

AS THE SCHOOL
YEAR GOES BY
PLACE TO GO.
THE NEW STUDENT CENTER
This year the Student Center took on a new role in our campus
life. According to Elmer Geli, the one responsible for the planning,
its purpose is to give the student an on-campus place to relax and
enjoy himself. With new artistic pieces, games, records, programs
and a working sound system, there are hopes that the "New Stu-
dent Center" will be a well-accepted addition to the college.
On January 22, 1978, a Sunday evening, there was an open house
to encourage everyone to come down and see all the changes going
on. There was a good turn out, with about 300 people showing, and
there was enough going on to keep everyone busy. Doughnuts and
milk were served; television, air hockey, video games, a foos-ball
and shuffleboard game, music, and door prizes all had their place
to make the evening a successful one. All these things add excite-
ment to a student's life, and the programs which followed had sim-
iliar success. The Table Tournament, Parfait for Two, Between the
Lines and Night Cap all have attracted student attention.
Services provided for the off-campus resident were a place to
refrigerate lunches, ride maps and an "Underground" bookstore to
exchange, buy, barter, or whatever, for the books you need. So.
not only for the student on-campus, but also for the village stu-
dent, the Student Center offered much more this school vear.

VISIONS-THE TITLE SAYS IT ALL
In producing this book, the staff ran into several difficulties, often we
had too little time to correct the errors. You have found in the portrait
section gaps between photos, large gaps between lines of pictures, and
differences in picture sizes (we suggest that you use the spaces for signing
the yearbook). The first set of pictures in each class section (the smaller
ones) were set alphabetically according to a computer printout given to
us by Dr. Kutzner from the Office of University Records. This is a mix-
ture of Inside Dope portraits and Visions' portraits that could not be
placed in Dr. Kutzners' list. This includes first quarter students and
those that could not be located in the Inside Dope. The reason that these
are larger is that they are separate from their class and this is a yearbook
error. Also, they took time to have their portraits taken. I, as editor felt
we owed them something. As for those that have been totally left out it
could be due to the following reasons: That they were not on Dr. Kutzner's
list and did not have a portrait taken, that their yearbook picture was
lost when we sent several sets out to be professionally developed, or when
we printed the portraits they would not print well and there was no Dope
picture to substitute.
But in spite of the mistakes, my staff both the new and old, is to be
credited. Who else would work for menial wages (from nothing to Vie
an hour) and with just the bare minimum of equipment. Who else could
have produced a yearbook for just 1 '/> times what most academies spend
on their. They deserve credit, (see the Visions Staff page) Special thanks
goes to the crew that worked spring vacation to meet our final deadline
and all of them worked without pay! They were: Harold and Kenny
Avila, Marjan Bentley, Martyn Charron, Russ Chevrier, Jodi Davies,
Elmer Geli, Patty Ibarra, Tom Macomber, Lenore Magsulit, Nanci
Roberts, Ron Sanders, Mickey Smith, Suzy Takeuchi, Don Taliafero,
Teresa Umali, and Dr. Robert Dunn, our sponsor.
Finally, what should a yearbook be, a public relations book, a book
that is filled hypocritically with only good memories, or a portrait of the
school. Truth is perhaps the most elusive of man's ideal qualities. Von
Goethe once said, "It is much easier to recognize error than to find
truth, error is superficial and may be corrected; truth lies hidden in its
depths." Yes, in some people's eyes we may have failed to find the truth,
perhaps even attempted to distort the truth but we have always, whether
it be in picture or words, sought the truth. Truth often hurts, but when
praise that is truthful comes, the sweetness is that much greater. Where
there is criticism, we can improve, we can learn, but perhaps more im-
portant, we can grow. Photographers often say the camera will not lie,
it picks up all characteristics. We hope that this edition of Visions has
painted a true portrait of life at our campus.
